Ashton Dugger

Just a simple girl Born and Raised in The South, I am a Ministry kid (and I survived--so far). As the oldest child of six kids, I am certainly prone to take charge in situations--although depending on the situation I can be extremely--hands off. I am naturally an introvert (which strangely shocks people), but I work very hard at my extroverted side, so I hide it well in public. After spending years working towards medical school and striving to become a surgeon the Lord flipped the script and I became a Psychologist with a side focus in Medical Sociology.  My passions include health, disability ministry, leadership, business strategy, and event planning. My family and friends are extremely important in my life--I am ferociously devoted to them. At the age fo 16, my whole world changed dramatically and very furiously. For over a decade, I was put on a journey to recover from an autoimmune disease while dealing with the overwhelming grief over the untimely loss of my best friend and the unexpected loss of my own future. As I share with you all the stories that make up my life, it is my hope that you are encouraged and spurred on in your own journey. I have long held onto the truth that the Lord will work all things--not some, not a few, not only the pretty things in my life--but ALL THINGS for my good. He will do the same for you! I hope to share with you the broken, flawed, and beautiful things in my life--in an effort to ensure you that you are NOT ALONE. Welcome to my story...
